A 42-year-old unemployed and a resident of Takoradi, Kwesi Botwe has been sentenced to 30 years imprisonment for impregnating his 15-year-old daughter.
Takoradi Circuit court sentenced the convict to 15 years each for defilement and incest.
Facts of the case as presented by Lance Corporal Philomina Johnson is that the convict, a resident of Appremdo in the Effia Kwesimintsim Municipality, was married to the complainant, Faustina Eshun, with whom he had six children including the victim.
The prosecutor told the court that sometime in 2018 the mother noticed that the victim was pregnant.
When questioned the victim mentioned her father and her Auntie’s husband, as the people who were having sex with her.

The other culprit, however, absconded.
During interrogation, the convict admitted the offence and he was subsequently arraigned before court.
After a series of court proceedings, Kwesi Botwe was sentenced to 30 years on two counts.
